This book is a comprehensive resource on acute neurorehabilitation consultations. When a patient first undergoes a traumatic brain or acquired spinal cord injury, an immediate consultation is needed with a rehabilitation specialist. In-depth literature reviews, practice guidelines, and case studies offer in-depth, practical coverage of the complete neurorehabilitation consultation with information on specific testing tools and metrics. The acute care consultant works in concert with other physicians and medical professionals, so throughout the text considerations on how to best organize the team to maximize care is carefully considered. Chapters also explore acute neurological sequelae, including arousal and stimulation, sleep, agitation, spasticity, and seizure prevention, for which an acute care consultant could provide important insight, treatment, and future management recommendations. The book concludes with advice on how to best transition patients from acute to long-term care, including patient prognostication and family education. This is an ideal guide for physiatrists and neurologists aiming to maximize recovery outcomes for their patients.
